Weekly connected conversations for curious, open-minded women who want to become kinder to themselves.
Have you ever listened to the way you talk to yourself when you're overwhelmed?
What is wrong with you? You can't even get the dishes done by the end of the day. You're behind deadline, again, but you kept wandering off to talk with people instead of making your eyes focus on the computer screen. The family needs dinner and you haven't planned ahead. And when was the last time you did laundry? Seriously, you're such a failure.
Write down the monologue in your head. Right now. Exactly like it sounds. Write down 5 minutes of the things you say to yourself when you're feeling overwhelmed and tired, berating yourself for not doing enough. For not being good enough.
Read it out loud to yourself.
Truly, listen to the way you're talking to yourself.
Are you being kind to yourself?
Next, take that same piece of writing and imagine reading it to your kid. Don't actually read it to your kid. I bet you wouldn't even dare. You know that if you read the monologue in your head to your 8-year-old daughter or 15-year-old son, you'd crush them. Crush them.
Why are you talking to yourself like this?

Make time for your delights.
If you join one of the women’s circles at the School of Kindfulness, and you commit to being kind, open-minded, and curious about yourself and the women you meet there, then you will find yourself transformed, as the months go by.
I build the container for authentic, vulnerable conversations and lead you toward revelations and mindset changes over time. You’ll create the symphony of stories that will emerge naturally, over time, as you start to know one another.
I’ll be the conductor, keeping time and guiding us toward a unified creative vision in our conversations.
I’m Shauna James Ahern and I'm passionate about helping women to let go of their old stories and start to live with more delight, kindfully.
If you're a woman who wants to become more mindful and wants a group of women to practice with...
If you're a kind and curious woman who survived a tough childhood....
If you're a woman with ADHD, and you want to embrace your challenges...
If you're a woman who wants to learn to trust what emerges from your writing...
If you're a woman who delights in food and still doesn't know what's for dinner...
“I’ve had the absolute joy of working with Shauna in her program and it has been life-changing. I consistently found that Shauna’s exceptional listening skills and heartfelt compassion were the ideal catalysts for the transformative facilitation she provided in every session.
Working with Shauna, I felt deeply valued and gently but powerfully guided. I recommend her very highly.”
"Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer."
